Reading Series One materials are appropriate for first grade students on grade level and for older students in need of intervention. These materials include a book set, Foundational Skills Teacher’s Guides for phonics instruction, and Close Reading Teacher’s Guides for comprehension instruction. The materials can be purchased separately or can be used together to deliver a full complement of reading instruction.
The Reading Series One Book Set is a collection of engaging and authentic decodable books in a range of text types that includes narratives and poetry. These texts are designed to consolidate foundational phonics skills, introduced in the Emergent Reader Series (reading single syllable and multisyllabic closed-syllable words and the most common high-frequency words), and give students the practice they need to develop reading stamina and increase their reading rate, fluency, and prosody in longer and more complex texts.
Reading Series One Foundational Skills Teacher’s Guides contain explicit, systematic, book-by-book instruction that supports teachers in the delivery of evidence-based instruction with a focus on solidifying the understanding of reading and spelling words with single consonants and short vowels, contrasting closed syllable words with open syllable high-frequency words, and introducing students to their first strategy for dividing and reading multisyllabic words. Our Reading Series One foundational skills instruction also includes teacher-directed analysis of morphemes, such as inflectional suffixes. After instruction, students can apply what they have learned to Reading Series One books. Foundational Skills Teacher's Guides include book-by-book progress monitoring assessments and periodic formative assessments.
Reading Series One Close Reading Teacher’s Guides contain scripted, book-by-book instruction that supports teachers as they model or scaffold students in the process of analyzing the setup, initiating event, and resolution of a story using Flyleaf’s Reading Series One Story Grammar Bookmarks. Throughout our Reading Series One close reading instruction, students can practice important strategic reading behaviors, such as thinking and talking about the text and illustrations, understanding nuances in word meaning, making inferences, reflecting deliberately on understanding, grappling with and identifying text structure, and examining the author’s craft.
The Reading Series One Complete Classroom Set contains suggested materials for delivering a full complement of Reading Series One instruction to a small group.
